Net Worth

This month’s net worth brought to you by A Series of (Un)fortunate Events:

1 truck sale, rather nice, actually.
1 car crash and totaled car, rather unfortunate.
1 set of nervous willies wherein I call in the loan in $1000 increments. This doesn’t affect the net worth as it’s just moving the money from one asset class to another. Slowly relieving stress here.

The most significant factor was the truck sale. It simultaneously removed the rest of the loan (liability) and supplemented my raided expense account.

Salting away money into the emergency fund helps, but there may be a bit of a drop when I pay my taxes. I have to review the paperwork one more time, because I kind of think (hope!) the accountant did something wrong for me to owe as much as he says I do. Either way, I should start emotionally letting go of that money saved for taxes. Probably shouldn’t have included it in the net worth to begin with, since it now feels like it’s “mine.” Well, it is, but you know what I mean.

    WOW! that’s a big jump in NW for one month, congrats!

    and uuuugggghhhh, i feel your taxes pain. I was all set to GET money back, but I think I’m going to have to pay. What makes it even worse is that i’ll have to pay from my NZ account, which will DOUBLE the dollar amount, plus.

    Sense: I’m pretending it’s not quite, actually, because of the taxes. Don’t like getting my hopes up only to be dashed.

    Ugh, so sorry you’re going to owe, too. You don’t have money in US accounts anymore?
